Montana Governor Repeals Directives Made By Former Governor
Montana Gov. Greg Gianforte repealed two executive orders issued by former Gov. Steve Bullock.
Executive Order 15-2018 required companies to report political spending if they wanted to bid on large state contracts.
The order also required companies bidding for certain state contracts to disclose political donations made within 60 days of an election.
The second order allowed county election clerks to expand voting by mail for the November general election to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
The order also required counties to offer in-person voting, but it did not require polling places to be open on election day.
